NOTICE: (Updated March 5, 2010)

Beginning December 19, 2009, Books 'N Border Collies will be posting but only intermittently while I pursue personal goals. I plan to share some reading I'm doing, but there will be no reviews. I will, however, be sharing my exploration of vegetarian cooking and the cookbooks and websites I use to educate myself. I hope you enjoy it!

In the last couple of weeks, I have received some very nice awards I want to make sure I mention:

I received this one from Dar at Peeking Between the Pages and Rose City Reader. Thank you so much! I pass this one on to everyone who has taken the time to comment so thoughtfully on this blog. Pass it on if you like, or just enjoy it as you will! :-)

And I got this fun award:

From my friend Teddy Rose at So Many Precious Books, So Little Time. I'd like to pass this one on to a few of new friends I've made in the last few months:

Michele at A Reader's Respite
Ramya at Ramya's Bookshelf
Kathy at Bermudaonion

There are lots more that should be included, which is why I always have such a hard time with these awards. Like so many of you, I want to give them to everyone! I know I missed mentioning some that I received a few months back because I felt like I was leaving friends out when I passed them on. But I don't want anyone to think they're not appreciated!! Thanks for the great awards I've received over my first year of blogging!

Thank you so much for passing this award on to me.. As much as I love receiving them, i dread giving them coz I always feel like I am not acknowledging everyone I should be acknowledging!I guess you know the feeling:)

Jo-Jo, Serena and Andi ~ Thank you!!

Bermudaonion ~ Thank you and you're welcome! I've so enjoyed your visits here! :-)

Ramya ~ Yup, I know *exactly* what you mean. That's why I shy away from acknowledging them on my blog sometimes even though I always try to make sure I let the bloggers who have awarded them to me know I appreciate it! I'm glad people understand. Pass it on if you like or just bask in the love! :-)

Congrats Lezlie. What I think I'm going to do now is when I get an award unless it's something really special or I want to recognize someone new I'm just going to do what I did last time and say that to everyone I comment on -that they deserve the award. Someone else mentioned that the award can go to all on their blogroll. I too feel really bad giving it to some when I've made such good friends along the way in the blogging world.

Thanks, Dar! That sounds like a really good plan. I'm trying to come up with one, so I can handle each of them the same way. I figure I should at least be uniform! :-) I know any that I do pass along, I try to let people know that my feelings will not be hurt at all if they just enjoy it themselves and leave it at that.


Michele said...

Aw shucks, Lezlie, thank you! And who wouldn't just give their left arm to be your buddy when you're reading all the classy books! ;)

Lezlie said...

Michele ~ You're welcome! And don't you worry. A girl can get along only so long without a good bit of literary fluff! :-)
